For anyone researching Heinrich Magasch who immigrated aboard the ship "Patience" on 19 Sept 1749 at Philadelphia, PA, I've uncovered some additional information. My ancestor, Carl Kayser, was next to him on the ship passenger list. We have documented that he was from the village of Möckmühl, Duchy of Württemberg. The German researcher who uncovered this, also sent a copy of Heinrich Magasch's marriage record to show they were both from Möckmühl. This is the summary of that record:
"The marriage between Johann Heinrich Magatsch, born in Okarben, a village in the dominion of Burg Friedberg (son of late soldier Johann Jacob Magatsch) and Maria Barbara Kayser (daughter of Sir Johan Conrad Kayser, member of the municipal council and butcher in Möckmühl) has been performed on 16 August 1712 in Möckmühl."
